ABSTRACT
The article reports on the delay of the implementation of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD)-10, which was confirmed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HSS). It states that the implementation date was formerly announced not going beyond October 1, 2013, but the delay could give additional time to prepare for and adopt the new diagnosis coding system. It suggests that the practice should continue working toward compliance with the new diagnosis coding system.
